What to Consider About Assisted Living in Virginia

All assisted living facilities in Virginia and the rest of Minnesota comply with licensure laws according to the Health Regulation Division of the Minnesota Department of Health. This division oversees all assisted living providers in the state through annual licensing procedures and on-site inspections, as well as by maintaining communication with care providers.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Virginia

 

  • Unlike most states, Minnesota taxes all forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits. Residents pay taxes at rates ranging from 5.35% to 9.85%, depending on their income, but fortunately, those aged 65 and over can deduct as much as $9,600 of their income. This may reduce what they owe to the state and make assisted living in Virginia accessible.

 

  • Essentia Health – Virginia is a 30-bed hospital in Virginia proper with a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals. This hospital houses a Level IV Trauma Center and provides 24-hour emergency care, rehabilitation services and clinical services. Additionally, many assisted living facilities in Virginia have on-site medical suites where visiting physicians provide routine wellness checks.

 

  • Virginia’s crime rate is higher than most communities across the state and nation, rating safer than just 11% of U.S. communities and 8% of Minnesota cities, as well as cities with similar area and population sizes. However, most crime occurs in the City Center and Virginia West districts, with the rest of the community reporting relatively few incidents. To help residents stay safe, assisted living communities have amenities such as security gates and professionally monitored security systems.

 

  • Virginia experiences four distinct seasons, appealing to assisted living residents who enjoy seeing the scenery change throughout the year. Winters are very cold, with lows averaging minus 6 degrees Fahrenheit, and summers are mild, with average daytime highs at 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The city gets 28 inches of rain and 62 inches of snow, with some type of precipitation falling 119 days out of the year.

 

  • The overall cost of living in Virginia is 15% below the national norm and 12 percentage points lower than Minnesota’s average, indicating general affordability for seniors with fixed incomes. Health care, transportation and groceries are economically priced compared to state and national norms, and housing costs are among the most affordable in the nation. This may result in comparatively low assisted living rates.
